Burmese Leader Asks India to Arm Anti-junta Groups

One of the top Burmese opposition leaders in exile has asked India to arm the country's pro-democracy parties with military and financial aid while snapping all defence sales to the ruling military junta.

Urging for a change in Indian foreign policy towards Burma, the National League of Democracy's Tint Swe said he believed that 'If not today, democracy will prevail soon'.

'If India is not going to change its policy then it will have to work harder, maybe for a decade, for better ties with a democratic regime,' said Swe, who had fled to India after he was elected a member of parliament in the 1990 elections, which were not accepted by the military.
